Can anyone point me to hi resolution fly-by videos in quicktime? I'm looking for nature-scenery-lanscape flying, but google is not being responsive.

By "hi resolution" videos, do you mean full rez DV clips or something like that?

Response by poster: No, just something larger than the 200x300px one usually encounters; my goal is to display them fullscreen.

It's not Quicktime (instead, MPEG 1/2/4, DivX) but there's

Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi on DVD presumably have some good footage (I've only seen the first)

Also, is paying an option? There are numerous stock footage sites out there. Are you doing this for fun or as a commercial project (or something else)?

Response by poster: Paying is an option (free is preferable); I just love those Imax films where you fly over landscapes and would dig having some fullscreen on my laptop is all.

Response by poster: Perhaps there's another term for this type of video? I am suprised at how little I'm finding - I would buy a DVD of this type of footage if I could locate it. Thanks everybody.

Besides simply googling generic stock footage sites (I would be surprised if they didn't have what you're looking for), you might try rolling your own using Terragen. Hey, it's free.

Response by poster: Wow - Terragen is easier than Bryce! Thanks, brundlefly.
